Transforming Lives & Communities Together


Supporting Adults With Developmental Differences

Thirty men and women with intellectual and developmental differences--aka disabilities--have chosen to live in one of our five homes in Holland, Michigan.

It adds that God holds us accountable for how we treat each other and for how we treat God. It is that framework of conviction that gave rise to our moral subculture of rights.
